Time flies when you’re having fun... and when you’re not, actually. Check out this retro style iron clock aeroplane from Griffins Garden Centre in Dripsey, Cork. You can get it in vintage yellow or green washed for €29.95. griffinsgardencentre.ie

If 1950s Scandi design floats your boat, the Charlie and Hill Living Collections, part of the Mid Century Collection at Michael Murphy Home Furnishing might be worth checking out. Simple, functional and the natural beauty of wood takes centre stage. A good example is this Charlie coffee table for €219, available at any one of their stores in Dublin, Newbridge, New Ross or Wexford or www.michaelmurphy.ie

Hop into your nearest Flying Tiger store for this funny bunny squishy green lamp, yours for €9, ie.flyingtiger.com

I like the size of this cute miniature lamp shade, it’s 80mm and would be good for a kids room, I reckon. €45.70 from urbancottageindustries.com

I’m constantly looking for storage solutions, it’s easier than admitting I have a hoarding problem, to be honest. I spotted this HJÄRTÉLIG basket from Ikea. The lid gets it extra points. €29, see www.ikea.ie for more.

Due to a dino-obsessed three-year-old, I find myself a little bit T-Rex appreciative myself these days. I saw this dinosaur wallpaper by The Tiny Garden on www.wallsauce.com. It’s made to measure and include a peel and stick option, so when the little darling decides dinos are so last year and wants the room covered floor-to-ceiling in Star Wars, it’ll be an easy transition. They deliver to Ireland too.

This set of ceramic coasters has two different designs, I love the Moroccan vibe and the colours work great together. The set is €9 from B&Q, see www.diy.com for more designs.
